      We received a collection of Barbie dolls MIB and put many of the dolls on display. What is best to do with all the boxes left? We also have metal toy combines, tractors, etc. boxes from toys put into an agriculture exhibit. I know that collectors sometimes really make a big deal about original boxes, but do museums need to keep them and all the packing intact and in permanent storage? Some of the rubber bands and plastic packaging on the dolls had started to deteriorate and cause damage on the dolls, so I doubt that when we took the dolls off exhibit that we would use them to repack the dolls anyway. Any comments or help?
